Important: Event capacity is limited to 18 attendees. Please consider that class might be full before the registration deadline.
The program is delivered as an intact certificate program in which registrants must attend all of the dates specified.
This certificate program is designed for intermediate-level HR professionals. While there are no prerequisites for the program, it is optimized for HR professionals with a few years of professional experience and a well-developed HR generalist skill set. In order to maximize the value of the program, we kindly ask that registrants have at least an intermediate level of HR knowledge and experience. We appreciate your understanding and your judgement in this matter.
In this certificate program, attendees will learn a practical HR Business Partner framework, the development strategy to prepare for – and grow inside – the role, and the HRBP “Enabling Skillsets” that encompass the business partner’s day-to-day skills: coaching, facilitation and consulting methodologies; organizational design and development principles; and talent planning.
The Enabling Skillsets – communicating & collaborating, diagnosing & solutioning, and financial and business acumen – have remained constant throughout the evolution of the HRBP role. Business Partners must be service-oriented and be willing and able to foster open and effective dialogue between themselves and their Line Manager, as well as all other stakeholders that impact their partner’s business. HRBPs must be willing and able to develop awareness of human capital barriers and opportunities, and engage their Line Manager with options to help them improve their business. To gain the trust of their line partners, and to inform the solutions offered, Business Partners must demonstrate an understanding of basic business and finance concepts.
At the conclusion of the program, participants will:
Current and future HR Business Partners seeking to further understand the framework of their role and improve their partnering skills, and HRBP managers seeking to define the expectations of business partnership within their team
